Over the years, Abhishek Bachchan has proved his mettle in acting as he had followed his father, Amitabh Bachchan's footsteps into the Hindi film industry. He had debuted with the film, Refugee in 2000. However, currently, the actor is basking in the success of his recently OTT-released film, Dasvi, and is getting appreciation from all the corners.
Abhishek Bachchan has often been compared to his father, Amitabh Bachchan in terms of acting. However, the actor is known for his wittiness, he always has a perfect answer to every troll. Recently, after his performance in Dasvi, he has been lauded with praises, and one of his fans compared him to Amitabh Bachchan for surpassing his father's fame. Abhishek gave the perfect response to it.
On April 12, 2022, one of Abhishek Bachchan's fans tweeted that from now on Amitabh Bachchan will be known for his son's amazing performance. Sharing the poster of the film, the fan wrote on his Twitter handle:
"After this movie, looking at @SrBachchan people will say, 'See that man, he is @juniorbachchan's father.' What a movie! #Dasvi (clapping emojis) What a class acting! #Abhishek #YamiGautam #NimratKaur #maddock #netflix #AbhishekBachchan #AmitabhBachchan."
As soon as Abhishek Bachchan noticed the tweet, he took his time to write a perfect response to his fan. He thanked the person and said that he can never surpass his father's aura and fame. He tweeted referring to one of his father's films, Shehanshah's dialogue:
"Thank you for the compliment but…. Never! Baap, baap hota hai. Aur Rishte mein wo hamare (father will always be the father. And he is my father in relation)…. You know the rest."
A few days back, when Dasvi's trailer was released, the proud father, Amitabh Bachchan had appreciated his son, Abhishek's performance in it. Declaring him to be his heir, Amitabh had quoted his father, Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poem and had tweeted:
"Mere bete, bete hone se tum mere uttradhikari nahi hoge. Jo mere uttradhikari honge, wo mere bete honge. --Harivansh Rai Bachchan. Abhishek, tum mere uttradhikari hoge, bus keh diya to keh diya."
On March 23, 2022, Amitabh Bachchan had written a long note expressing his feelings for his son, Abhishek Bachchan. He had shared how proud it feels to be recognised as his son's father. Quoting, Harivansh Rai Bachchan's poem, Vasiyatnama, Amitabh had revealed about inheritance. He had penned:
"Such pride in the progeny, or as they call it humorously --my progress report! The greatest joy for a Father is to witness the achievements of his children .. to savour the glory they bring to his name .. to be in the recognition as the Father of Abhishek, rather the other way round .. and Abhishek sums it up for me .. I have given this example often through one of babuji’s poem on the ‘vasiyatnama’ the WILL of inheritance, that is written for the progeny on the passing of the elder ..one of the most prominent lines of the verse are: my sons will not be my inheritors my heir apparent, my successors, just because they are my sons; instead they that are my successors, my uttaradhikari’s, shall be my sons."
Well surely, Abhishek Bachchan is the perfect uttradhikari to his father, Amitabh Bachchan. What do you think?
